Even though we had quite a long ride to the hotel from the airport, it was worth it. The hotel is situated close to the sea with Etna view on the other side (we could see the eruptions during the night). The best thing about this hotel is the breakfast with delicious cakes and good variety of things to eat... More

First of all, don't try to find an "Idea" name on a hotel! We had a big problem finding it, and when trying, met a few people having the same problem...there's a big illuminated sign "Ognina" on the roof, but the name Idea is nowhere to be found. Don't try to find it by adress either! It's located just behind... More

Lots of pluses and minus for this hotel. Rooms basic and in need of renovation. Staff very helpful and friendly. On a major road overlooking a petrol station if you got a room on the road side of the hotel. Lovely sea view if you got a room on the ocean side. We initially got a petrol station room but... More

The rooms could do with a bit of attention in terms of maintenance, especially the bathrooms, this by no means detracted from the overall experience as they were clean and perfectly adequate for our stay. We found the hotel to be ideally placed. Just outside the busy centre of Catania, so you avoid the noise and hassle of the town.... More

The staff was incredibly kind!! Right next to the sea, the scenery is incredible!Good breakfast! I would def come back :) But car is a must if you stay in this hotel, or you have to walk a lot to get to the center...Don't trust the buses :D But HIGHLY recommended!

The hotel was marketed as being close to the sea which was a little misleading. We (and our sat nav) found it difficult to find. The staff were fairly friendly and the impressive reception area would lead many to expect much more from this hotel. The rooms were very small although scrupulously clean. The breakfast was disappointing. No orange juice... More

My wife and I spent 3 days in Catania and got this hotel for 45 Euros a night and thought it was a good deal. A simple breakfast was included as well as free parking right in front of the hotel. You can see the beautiful water from your hotel window (ask for a room on the back side). We... More

酒店是连锁型的三星酒店,同样是三星比罗马的所谓三星家庭酒店好多了。首先交通比较便利,酒店有免费的停车场地, 对于开车游览西西里的人很方便,而车对于西西里而言几乎是必不可少的。酒店早餐很好,我们夫妇带3岁女儿定了一个 双人间,并没有为孩子支付任何费用,但是也能享受酒店的早餐,而且吃得很不错。肉类,牛奶,果汁。面包等等。 酒店有sky TV,甚至可以看到中文频道。入住酒店的凌晨两点,我女儿饿醒了要喝牛奶,我去前台找热水,前台 还有人兢兢业业的在服务,很好。酒店出门向左,第一个路口左拐,5分钟可以找到一个中餐厅。 洗澡间太小了,太小了。wifi是要收钱的。 The hotel is a Chain style 3stars hotel, much better than a family style 3stars hotel in Rome. The hotle has a free car park which is good. A car is Necessary in sicily anyway. The breakfast was very good, We did not pay anything (even city tax) for my three years old... More
